Mike The Mailman, HDFS Professor Molly Countermine To Give Their Own ‘Last Lectures’
The Penn State Mortar Board honor society will host a “Last Lecture” event on November 28, featuring popular Penn State icon Mike “The Mailman” Herr and HDFS professor and noted Phyrst performer Molly Countermine.
The lecture will take place at 7 p.m. in 100 Thomas and is free and open to the public as Herr and Countermine are slated to give an inspiring lecture to motivate students before finals week.
“This inaugural event aligns with the Mortar Board pillars by exposing students to notable Penn State role models and by encouraging commitment to scholarship with pre-finals motivation,” Mortar Board President Marie Brulenski said. “We hope this event will promote Mortar Board on campus during our recruitment period, and are excited to see our efforts come into fruition!”
Mike “The Mailman” Herr became a cult hero at Penn State during his time in charge of Penn State’s on-campus post office. He retired from his beloved position on April 1, 2016, exactly 48 years after he started working for the University Park USPS. His genuine kindness and excellent customer service are two of the many reasons why Mike the Mailman is a Penn State icon.
Molly Countermine is currently a professor in the College of Health and Human Development, but she may be best known by upperclassmen for her jams at the Phyrst as lead singer of the band Maxwell Strait. In just a few hours, Countermine goes from teaching class to rocking out in front of a rowdy crowd at the Phyrst on any given day.
